Student’s work on designing books for the blind forms part of annual degree showA project aiming to make graphic design more accessible to partially-sighted people is just one of a host of exhibits showcasing the impressive work of students from Anglia Ruskin University’s Cambridge School of Art.
“When carrying out research, it was clear that very little is done in the way of designing books for the blind as they are often presented with simple Braille on a page. This was something that I wanted to provide a solution to.
“I want designers to work on creating enhanced experiences for the blind. This really became my goal after meeting with various blind individuals as I could see the enjoyment such a book brought to them.”
“We have some incredibly talented students and the annual degree show gives us an opportunity to show off their work to the wider public.
“Poppy’s work demonstrates how our design students are tackling real issues in society, using their creativity to improve the lives of other people. Our students go on to great things in their respective fields, and I am sure Poppy’s fascinating work will attract real interest at the end of year graduate show.”
